Things My Wife if Better at Than ME ๐Ÿ“‚

**spoiler alert** the answer is everything, except sports and math.

    Halloween costumes
    We're "Under Pressure" circa 2013. All I did was grow a mustache and slick my hair back, she actually channeled David Bowie! There's other examples, this was just the first pic I found. One year we went on a costume cruise and they almost didn't let me on the boat because my costume showed such little effort (brown corduroy pants, green t shirt, "I'm shaggy from scooby doo"), the only reason they let me on was because I showed up with the prettiest Daphne they'd ever seen.

    She graduated in 4 years, with honors, on the Deans list. Her graduation ceremony was at Angels stadium and Obama was the commencement speaker. Two years later she's about to get her Masters degree. I went to several different schools, never sniffed the deans list and I have no idea who spoke at any of those grad ceremonies - it damn sure wasn't at my happiest place on earth, The Big A! *update* she got her masters and started her job with the county and she's already the best person they have!

    Eating healthy and sticking to her work out program.

Hunt the good stuff

Inspired by @aminam Sometimes it is challenging to not dwell on the overwhelming worrisome things happening in my life and the anxiety I feel. So 5 Things:
  1. 1.
    I do have a decent paying job that I mostly enjoy. (I'm feeling more motivated about this school year.)
  2. 2.
    I've still managed to keep on my streak of not having soda or sugary beverages for nearly 2.5 months even with school starting!
  3. 3.
    I had a decent amount of Cold Mountain Winter Ale left from last fall (WHY I WAITED IN LINE FOR 2 1/2 HOURS FOR CRAFT BEER) so I was able to enjoy a few last night.
    (I know beer has sugar too - I've been drinking less of that too...mostly)
